Just interested to know. Mine is a 10 minute walk to the station followed by a 12 minute train journey, then a 15 minute walk to work. Then obviously the same on the way back and I think I'm really lucky....how about you?

15 minute walk to the station followed by 40 mins on the tube & 5 mins walk.

Or 15 mins to station, 20 mins on the tube & then a 7k run the rest of the way through parks.

Love the flexibility!

Mine is 5 minute drive to the tram stop, 30 minute tram ride, then 5 minute walk to work.

mammymammyIRL Wed 24-Jan-18 07:57:08

13mins by car grin with no traffic

stoplickingthetelly Wed 24-Jan-18 08:01:30

I'm really lucky, 5-8 minute drive. Could probably walk in about 30 minutes, but don't as have kids to drop off and books to carry etc.

GunslingerPie Wed 24-Jan-18 08:01:59

A 6 minute drive to the next villagegrin

Mine is 1 min walk to bus stop... 25-30 mins on bus... And then 1 min walk to work. Used to be similar on bus but longer at the other end, until I changed jobs last year.

VivaLeBeaver Wed 24-Jan-18 08:02:24

Not so lucky.

2 min walk to station. 1hr15mins on a crowded train. Then 2 mile bike ride which when wet and windy like today is not fun. Uphill as well.

I've managed to walk the 10 metres from my bed to my desk this morning. Its a tough commute but someone has to do it grin

moonlight1705 Wed 24-Jan-18 08:03:24

On a good day then 55 minutes drive, on a bad day then anything up to 1 hr 30 mins.

I used to be able to walk to work then moved jobs to a completely new town sad

GrumpyOldMare Wed 24-Jan-18 08:03:51

5 minute walk to the station,an 11 minute train ride,then a 15 minute cycle to work

PenguinsandPandas Wed 24-Jan-18 08:06:16

I am wfh 4 days a week and only one in office, the 4 days I work from bed with a laptop. 😳 Other day about an hour each way.

user453678953 Wed 24-Jan-18 08:06:53

For years I was 1 hours drive each way. Now i work for myself and takes me three minutes in the car. I know how lucky I am and thank my lucky stars every day

glow1984 Wed 24-Jan-18 08:07:50

Working from home at the moment, but that will change once I get a new job (being made redundant).

Previously it was, and will probably change back to

DP gives me a lift to the train station. Drive is 10-20 minutes long depending on traffic /roadworks. Train into London, taking 45 mins to an hour. Then the tube, for about 10-20 minutes

It sucks but all the best roles in my field are in London!

AccrualIntentions Wed 24-Jan-18 08:08:36

5 minutes to station, 5 minutes on train, 5 minutes to desk. It's great. If the trains go tits up it's a 30 minute walk.

ommmward Wed 24-Jan-18 08:09:35

20 minute run each day each way, except when i bike. More like 15 mins by bike.

I know it is a huge privilege (and a big reason - for me - not to live in London! Can't be many people who'd manage that in London)

RoryAndLogan Wed 24-Jan-18 08:11:27

10-15 minute walk to the station, 45 minute train, 5 minute walk to the tube, 5 minute tube journey then a 5 minute walk to work. With all the waiting in between it's over an hour and a half sad

cornishmumtobe Wed 24-Jan-18 08:11:41

Today I'm going to wander downstairs and open my laptop (working from home).

To go in the office - anywhere between a 5 and 20 minute walk to my car depending on where I've been able to park. 30 minute drive to ferry. Wait for ferry. Use ferry. 10 minute drive to office.

I prefer today grin

PurpleWithRed Wed 24-Jan-18 08:11:47

20 min walk or 20 min drive in the morning rush hour - 5 min drive any other time. There’s a crossroads, a roundabout and a junior school on the way to work hence the morning traffic. Sadly I often need my car at work for client visits.

ElizabethLemon Wed 24-Jan-18 08:12:32

20 minute walk 😇.

BumpowderSneezeonAndSnot Wed 24-Jan-18 08:13:47

Depending on traffic either a 45min drive or a 3 hour drive. Worst it's been is 4.5hrs

ShotsFired Wed 24-Jan-18 08:17:05

Some days: Drive 40 minutes on virtually deserted motorway, park in work car park, enter office.

Other days: Walk down hallway to back bedroom and sit at desk.

ClaireBear1986 Wed 24-Jan-18 08:18:47

Wow, most of you have such quick and easy commutes. I am so jealous!!

Mine is a 10 min walk to the tube station, approx 1 hour and 15 mins tube journey ( this can be longer depending on how slow the tube is and if there are delays) then a 15 min walk to work the other end.

The tube is also packed, and so most days end up standing while pregnant for the whole journey.

My commute is the main reason that I am taking my mat leave early.

PaperdollCartoon Wed 24-Jan-18 08:19:20

At the moment I split between two offices. One is 2 minutes walk from my house. The other involves an 8 minute walk, 40 minute train journey and then 12/15 minute walk.

Soon to start new job, which will mean 8 minute walk, 50 minute train, 5 minute walk, 10 minute tube and 10 minute walk... an hour and a half ish all in.

Notthesoap Wed 24-Jan-18 08:19:20

5 minute drive to my mums to drop my eldest off at hers so she can give him breakfast and take him to school. From my mums it's a 3 minute drive to the childminders for youngest.
From there is a 50 minute drive to work (due to traffic). With no traffic this journey would take 30 mins tops. sad I hate my commute.
